Bong Revilla on Benhur Luy’s testimony: ‘Bad script’
MANILA, Philippines—”Bad script.” That’s how Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. on Thursday described the testimony of whistleblower Benhur Luy.
“Bad script. Abangan na lang natin. Lalabas din ang katotohanan (Let’s just wait. The truth will finally come out),” Revilla said in an ambush interview.
Revilla, who arrived at the Sandiganbayan on Thursday afternoon for his bail hearing, faced off with Luy at the anti-graft court’s first division.
Luy arrived with a bullet proof vest. Revilla was wearing a green polo shirt.
When asked for his message to Luy in an ambush interview, Revilla said: “Tell the truth.”
Luy when asked for his reaction quickly replied,”Yes.”
Luy, who is a second cousin of alleged “pork” barrel mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles, testified for the first time before the Sandiganbayan on the pork barrel scam.
Meanwhile, Cavite Vice-Governor Jolo Revilla and Bacoor Mayor Strike Revilla were also present during the bail hearing to support the detained senator.
